Here's my schedule:
A Worldwide Sandbox
7 p.m. Friday, November 20
Carl Fink (moderator), Eric Hardenbrook, Alyce Wilson, Savan Gupta, Tauney Kennedy
How has modern technology (and our enforced physical separation) changed the way we communicate and collaborate?
Reading - Alyce Wilson
1 p.m. Saturday, November 21
I'll be reading selections from my newest poetry collection, "Owning the Ghosts," plus perhaps a selection from my 3x-great-grandfather's poetry, Dr. James Meredith Mathews, from the collection of his poetry I published in December 2019, "Reading's Physician Poet."
How Many Different Modes of Editing Are There?
11:30 a.m. Sunday, November 22
Alyce Wilson (moderator), Peng Shepherd, Barbara A. Barnett, Gregory Frost, Alex Shvartsman
Checking for mistakes in grammar or spelling is one obvious focus of editing your work; looking at potential problems with pacing and plot-holes another. But what about edit passes for tone, and examining how your word choices and sentence structures impact the feel of a scene? Or the value of doing a draft that looks solely at removing anything unnecessary?
Books as Trophies?
4pm Sunday, November 22
Alyce Wilson (moderator), Tom Purdom
Why do so many of us keep books that we already know we're never going to look at again by the time we finish our first read-through? Is there a quantifiable benefit to keeping them, or are we better off Marie Kondo-ing through our collections?
